Information of the Bidder:

Today Jiye Auto Parts GmbH (the 'Bidder'), a company affiliated with the
Chinese automotive component supplier Ningbo Jifeng Auto Parts Co. Ltd.
decided to offer to the shareholders of GRAMMER Aktiengesellschaft (the
'Grammer Shareholders') by way of a voluntary public takeover offer to
acquire their no-par value bearer shares in GRAMMER Aktiengesellschaft,
each representing a notional amount of EUR 2.56 in the registered share
capital (ISIN DE0005895403) (the 'Grammer Shares'), against payment of a
cash consideration of EUR 60.00 per Grammer Share (the 'Takeover Offer').
The foregoing is subject to the final determination of the minimum price
and the final terms set forth in the offer document.

In addition, the Grammer Shareholders shall benefit from the dividend to be
paid for the financial year 2017, which is expected to be an amount of EUR
1.25 per Grammer Share, resulting in a total consideration of EUR 61.25 per
Grammer Share. In the event the settlement of the Takeover Offer occurs
prior to annual general meeting of GRAMMER Aktiengesellschaft, which will
resolve upon the distribution of profits for the financial year 2017, the
cash consideration will be increased by EUR 1.25 per Grammer Share to EUR
61.25 per Grammer Share. In the event the settlement of the Takeover Offer
occurs after the annual general meeting of GRAMMER Aktiengesellschaft
resolving upon the distribution of profits for the financial year 2017 the
Grammer Shareholders will receive the dividend for financial year 2017 from
GRAMMER Aktiengesellschaft. In the event the annual general meeting does
not resolve a dividend or a dividend which is lower than EUR 1.25 per
Grammer Share, and provided the Takeover Offer is settled, the Bidder will
pay the difference to the amount of EUR 1.25 per Grammer Share to those
Grammer Shareholders who have accepted the Takeover Offer.

The completion of the Takeover Offer will be subject to certain conditions.
These will include, in particular, a minimum acceptance condition of 50%
(including the 25.56% share held by an affiliate of the Bidder, i.e. JAP
Capital Holding GmbH) of the issued shares of Grammer Aktiengesellschaft
plus one Grammer Share and receipt of necessary antitrust and other
regulatory clearances. Apart from this, the Takeover Offer will be made on
and subject to the terms and conditions yet to be communicated in the offer
document. The publication of the offer document and further information
regarding the public takeover offer on the internet will take place on
http://www.allianceforthefuture.com. Additionally, the publication of the
offer document will be announced in the federal gazette (Bundesanzeiger).

Takeover Offer will be disclosed in the offer document after the
publication of the offer document has been approved by the German Federal
